What are the products and the services that Hikvision offers and what did you display at Intersec 2023?
In 2023, at Intersec Hikvision displayed its latest commercial display with a resolution surpassing even 4K. Visitors at the booth could witness the exceptional color and performance, as well as the innovative 3D naked Eye LED technology. Our major focus is on video security solutions, but we also offer a full range of offerings for management of vehicle entrance and exit, people access control, employee time and attendance which, provide comprehensive building solutions. We work with multiple partners such as system integrators and technology partners to provide a complete solution to end users. Our target markets include the logistics, smart traffic, enterprise, energy, education, hospitality, and retail industries.
Talk about the presence of Hikvision in the market?
In the Middle Eastern region, we have a strong presence in countries such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE and have worked on several successful projects with prominent customers. In 2022, we collaborated with Americana Group, the largest retail group in the region, to provide business intelligence and AI features that improved efficiency and increased sales for the retail sector. Additionally, we worked on a project at KNO School in Oman, where we provided a smart campus solution for the school to ensure a safe and secure environment for students. Our solution included interactive screens, transforming traditional blackboard classrooms into modern digital ones, allowing for easier interaction between teachers and students. The classroom is equipped with several features. The most notable one is the interactive screen that allows for seamless interaction with all activities. The teacher can prepare and upload their teaching materials to the screen, which is fully synchronized. The class schedule is pre-arranged, and there’s a class panel in front of each classroom that can be controlled from the booth. Currently, the classroom is set up for a chemistry and mathematics class.
What are the new products and the services that you showcased at Intersec 2023?
Intersec is not just about showcasing products this year. Our focus is on the combination of technology and application to provide a complete solution to our customers. We also have high-definition commercial displays with AI features for retail analysis and industrial cameras designed for the energy sector. Our goal is to integrate these products and provide vertical solutions by combining technology, applications, and user experience. Our product line is extensive, but we understand that working alone is not enough. We collaborate with third-party partners and integrate with the security industry. Our approach is to provide a universal platform that can be used across all verticals and work with partners to design specific, tailored solutions based on their field knowledge and experience. This allows us to create detailed solutions for retail, hotels, hospitals, etc.
